  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Enjoy lots of graphic chevrons with this two-color brioche shawl design. The pattern begins at the corner with one chevron motif. Then, more chevrons are achieved one a time with an I-cord cast on technique to expand the shape. You can customize the size easily by binding off early or continue to knit more pattern repeat for a big shlanket (shawl/blanket). The sample features Qing Fibre’s fingering weight Yak Single for the main color with my favorite Melted Baby Suri alpaca yarn for the contrast color.

    If you are using a fluffy alpaca or mohair yarn, I recommend using it as the CC for a fluffy background.

    You can knit this pattern with any fingering weight yarn! You don’t need to have a fluffy yarn for the CC if you want a smoother non-fluffy shawl fabric. Using two colors of fingering weight wool will also make a beautiful graphic Briochevron Shawl.
